  • “Ford End Cottage is situated on the edge of Ampleforth , slightly set back from the road, and is an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area.”

    Ampleforth has a shop, two pubs and an excellent cafe (it is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays) but is well worth a visit.

    Ampleforth has a shop, two pubs and an excellent cafe (it is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays) but is well worth a visit. The cottage itself has been beautifully renovated, decorated and is very well equipped; the garden space provides a comfortable and peaceful place to eat outdoors. Any queries we had were quickly dealt with by the owners. We had a lovely holiday and cannot recommended Ford End Cottage highly enough.

The property

Ford End Cottage is a converted former 18th century carriage house set back from the road on the western end of the traditional North Yorkshire village of Ampleforth.

Renovated to a high standard and providing three gorgeous bedrooms and bathrooms, a beautiful contemporary kitchen/diner, and a welcoming sitting room with a toasty woodburning stove, it provides a stunning location for a group of six.

Enter the front door into a spacious ceramic tiled hall, opening into a lovely kitchen/diner, fitted with a large granite work surface, ceramic hob and oven, fitted microwave and grill, fridge/freezer and a wooden dresser, resting next to a family dining table where you can enjoy delicious home-cooked meals as you pass around a well-deserved bottle of wine.

Settle down for an evening in the living area, kicking your feet back on the plush sofas whilst the woodburning stove warms you up as you watch a film, with this room boasting stunning oak flooring, plush sofas, and French windows opening to the front terrace area.

The hall opens to the rear into the back kitchen and utility room, home to a washer dryer, as well as the ceramic tiled shower room complete with underfloor heating.

Make use of the enclosed private garden, home to a lovely patio and outdoor seating where you can sip on a morning coffee as you breathe in the fresh country air.

Also leading from the hall are carpeted stairs taking you up to a small landing; to the left is the king-size bedroom benefiting from its own luxury en-suite bathroom with ceramic tiling and underfloor heating, and to the right is the first twin bedroom with large south facing windows, affording access to the second twin bedroom which leads to a mezzanine balcony with stairs down to the sitting room, while across the landing is a cosy, carpeted bathroom.

This beautiful cottage is situated on the edge of Ampleforth village, with a wealth of amenities on your doorstep including two country pubs, both serving delicious food, a handy village shop with post office, and a family-run tea room.

Visit the honeypot town of Helmsley, home to a vibrant market square, ancient castle, and walled gardens, or follow the Monks' trods over to either Byland or Rievaulx Abbey.

Ramblers will delight in being so close to nature in the North York Moors, discovering Yearsley Woods and the Howardian Hills AONB, all offering walking, hiking, cycling and mountain biking opportunities.

Find the thriving centre of York, a historic city with fantastic tourist attractions including the York Minster cathedral, Clifford's Tower York, and the National Railway Museum, as well as lovely shopping opportunities, restaurants and bars along the quaint cobbled streets.
